Question Starter removal help

Hi, I need to replace the starter on my '99 XJ8. Saw the post elsewhere regarding starter removal, but I have two questions:

What is a "U.J"? (The upper bolt may be removed (after loosening) using a 3/8' square drive 13 mm socket, extensions and U.J as shown.)

Any advice on how to access upper starter bolt? Will the half moon wrench take care of that problem?

I really don't plan on removing the steering rack.

I would guess that UJ = "Universal Joint" = swivel

but I could be wrong ....

Hi
The U.J. is the abbreviation for Univeral Joint tool (also know as a ratchet swivel flex universal joint extension).

This jpeg shows this tool attached to a rachet, the extension bars, the swivel, and the socket all assembled to give access the upper mounting bolt of the starter. Also a close-up of the swivel flex universal joint extension.

Here is information from the JTIS:
Remove the starter motor securing bolts.Remove the upper securing bolt. Preferably, use a short 13 mm spanner or a Snap On Half Moon spanner CMX1113 to initially loosen the bolt.

The upper bolt may be removed (after loosening) using a 3/8' square drive 13 mm socket, extensions and U.J as shown.

Click the image to open in full size.

I think to 300 length is 300 mm or about 11 inches, and the 140 is 140 mm or about 5 1/2 inches.

Hope this helps

Jim Lombardi
